Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Rotate tools, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
Down here next to the Lift and Stamp tools…are the Rotate tools. Now I don't know if you've ever had this problem.…Have you ever shared a camera with somebody, and especially if it's a girlfriend or a boyfriend or a spouse or someone, it seems…like you always hold the camera one way and they always hold the camera the other way?…So the pictures can come in sort of cockamamie. So for instance,…if I shot this shot, I would have it this way, because my way is going to be the right way.…
But the other shot may come in…like this, for the person who holds the camera the other way.…So how do you fix this? It's very easy in Aperture, I am just going to take a minute to show you.…We have the Rotate tools to rotate counterclockwise…and to rotate clockwise and all you have to do is just click on your image,…hit the Rotate tool,…to go where you want and that's all there is to it. So you have Rotate tools for both directions.…This will help preserve the harmony in relationships where one person holds the camera one way…

Q: Are there a way to increase the font size in Aperture?
A: Not in Aperture itself, but you can use the zoom feature built into your operating system. (Aperture is a Mac-only program, by the way.) Go to the Apple menu and open System Preferences. Choose Universal Access. Turn on Zoom under the Seeing tab. Then, in any application, you can press Shift+Cmd+Plus to zoom in and Shift+Cmd+Minus to zoom out.
We advise you do not lower the screen resolution unless it's absolutely necessary, as that approach tends to make images softer than they really are. But if your sight is very poor, the tradeoff might be worth it.
